Had a wonderful weekend away but of course ate waaay to much . No wonder obesity is a national disease in the US. everyone goes out to eat for every meal. The portions are gi-nor-mouse and every thing tastes soooo good. I am on water and water skip even the bread for at least a day.
Found a wonderful wool shop. Very friendly and lots on sale. Unfortunately I had a car full of non knitters waiting for me so I felt a little pressured not to keep them waiting. If we go again next year I will just take a taxi. Mind you I managed to buy something anyway. It wasn't hard. The weather was heaven sent. Sun shine and no coats....perfect.
Got back to the computer to find reams of e mail from NaNoWriMo. I signed up for some forums. Yikes my in box is about as bloated as I am. Here it is 7am and I have to find something to wear to work. I just put all my warm weather clothes away too. Now it is supposed to be 24 C today. This just isn't right. Not for the last 10 days of October.
So 10 days huh? I have an idea but no plot for my NaNo. I have a couple of characters but only one name. I have no locale. I do have my pages of pictures to inspire me. Sounds pretty pathetic and out of that I am going to make 50,000 words...?

Now I wonder where that originated? Probably from Toledo Spain. Home of Toledo steel, and El Greco...........Ole
So tomorrow we leave for Toledo.....calm down.....it's in OHIO too. Yeah I know I would rather go to the "other" one too. But hey it has been forever since we have been anywhere so I will take a weekend in Toledo Ohio. Better than nuttin'. We are going with Gord and Dot. He is playing hockey and we will swim and relax and maybe go window shopping after all the dollar is up and bloody time too. My dear one will want to look at "electronics" I will be looking for wool shops......hehehe.
We are booked at what appears to be a very nice hotel...pool, spa,
microwave in the room..memo to self "take Orville Redinbocker". How much do you want to bet he packs more for 2 days than I? Speaking of which I better get my stuff together....TTFN

What can I say? I am addicted to Dexer. Showtime Sunday's at 10 or Rogers On Demand when ever you can watch it. Now that is just for me. Tonite is going to be another boring evening at home alone. Carl is working so I am going to watch Season 2, #3. So far it is every bit as good as Season 1.
Oh the sweater fit and other than the fact I have to "snug" up the buttons holes the verdic is "Perfect."
I feel very crappy today. I was up in the night doing a "Linda Blair" imitation....Yak Yak..
I am tired and freezing cold (I am wearing 2 sweaters) and my tummy hurts. I ate rice pudding and arrowroot biscuits for breakies and lunch. Even peppermint tea seems to make my tummy ache. Oh another yawn....and a shiver.
Time to get back to work. Lunch break is over!

I finished Carl's sweater which I think he wore to work. It was missing from the dining room table where I had blocked it last night. I hope he likes it and it fits. He will be home around 7:30 so I will find out then.
Back to NaNo......topic this year will be Mystery/Suspense/Victorian/Gothic. OOO I can feel the hair on the back of my neck rising.
Yes, I am still torturing myself at Curves. I have been there for 7 workouts. I am just trying to get to 10 and the woman across from me was saying 3 more and she will get her 300 work out t shirt. Geeze what did she look like before she started? That was not meant to be cruel but I did wonder. One of the women lost 50 pounds in a year. Interesting.
OK I have to go make with the pots and pans I am starving!

I have enjoyed the commercials that have been on the radio and TV. If you don't want someone else to speak for you then step up and speak up.
Too many, so called, citizens complain that one vote won't make a difference well it does make a difference . Our survival as a democracy depends on our defence of the democractic process.
New Canadians value this opportunity to exercise their mandate. We, "homegrown Canadians"
need to appreciate our freedoms more!

Journey to the Center of the earth!
Doesn't this take your breath away?
